Drunkenness and Gluttony

Drunkenness and Gluttony
Prophecy
"(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the Cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)" Philippians 3:18-19

"Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed." Luke 17:28-30

"Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy." Ezekiel 16:49.

Fulfillment
"It's a bitter truth to swallow: About every fourth person on Earth is too fat. Obesity is fast becoming one of the world's leading reasons why people die...We're even seeing obesity in adolescents in India now. It's universal. It has become a fully global epidemic - indeed, a pandemic."*

*EMMA ROSS and JOSEPH B. VERRENGIA Associate Press May 8, 2004

Recent Statistics:
United States: two out of every three Americans are overweight.

Britain: 75% of adults are overweight or obese, a 400% increase in 25 years.

Mexico: 40% live in poverty yet 67% are overweight.

(There are dozens of other countries who have similar statistics. May 2004)

The same sins of gluttony and drunkenness that benumbed the moral sensibilities of the inhabitants of Sodom are prevalent today. As a society we, like the dwellers of those wicked cities of the plain, have lost a sense of the exceeding sinfulness of the crime and immorality that is so pervasive today. Christ thus warns the world: "Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed." Luke 17:28-30
